NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Impulse! Records is preparing the release of a second “lost” album by jazz legend John Coltrane.

According to NPR, Blue World will be released on Sept. 27, and features the classic John Coltrane Quartet, with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums performing during a recording session at Rudy Van Gelder’s Studios June 24, 1964.

The recording session, which captured a pivotal moment in the quarter’s history, occurred just weeks after they wrapped the recording of Crescent. According to NPR, the recording was intended as the soundtrack for a Canadian art film and had previously gone unnoticed in session recording logs due to its date immediately after the Crescent sessions.

Impulse! struck gold last year with the release Coltrane’s ” Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album” which collected a group of previously unreleased studio recordings first laid down by the John Coltrane Quartet in 1963.

The album, released more than 50 years after Coltrane’s 1967 death, was his first entry on the Billboard 200, landing at 21, with global sales of more than 250,000 copies.
